Do Saunas Burn Calories?

Yes, saunas can burn calories, but the amount is relatively small and should not be considered a primary weight loss method. Sitting in a sauna raises your heart rate and increases your metabolic rate, causing your body to burn more calories than it would at rest. However, the calorie burn from a sauna session is generally minimal, usually around 100-150 calories per session, and can vary depending on factors such as the temperature and duration of the session and an individual's weight, age, and health status.

While saunas can benefit weight management, such as promoting relaxation and reducing stress, they should not be used as a substitute for exercise and a healthy diet. A balanced approach that includes regular exercise, a nutritious diet, and stress management techniques, such as sauna use, can contribute to overall health and wellness.
